This celebration of Tacos will take place at the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market which is right on Main Street in Dallas between Crowdus Street and Malcolm X Blvd. Come out for the North TX Taco Festival Saturday any time between 11am and 5pm. The Outdoor Market will be going on at the same time so you can munch on delicious tacos AND browse the market!

A Chef Cookoff will also be taking place at this year’s North Texas Taco Festival. This is where chefs are removed from their own kitchens and placed out in the open against each other to create the bestest taco in the land. Yes, we’re taking the taco-making back into the streets! If you’d like to be one of the taste-testers of these creations, there will be a raffle held to sample tacos from each of the five chefs. Then qualified judges will determine the final winner. Whether classic, urban, unique or chic, enjoy taco eating and taco feeding at this salsafied taco meeting Sunday, 4/20 at the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market!
